Driving the coastal N659 road in Holland
N659 is the name of a spectacular road through the Oyster dam (‘Oesterdam’), on the boundary of North Brabant and Zeeland provinces, in the Netherlands.
Tucked away on the southwestern part of the country, the road is totally paved. It follows the Oesterdam, part of the Dutch Deltaworks, built to prevent the mainland from seafloods. The road was finished after the construction of this dam -to facilitate the construction of the Oyster dam- in 1986.
The road is 14.5 km (9 miles) long running north-south from Steenenkruis to Middenhof. It’s a very popular drive with tourists and cyclists at peak times.
